How to get started

You need to be registered for District before you can activate Danske ID.

You can only use the Danske ID app on a smartphone or tablet. It cannot be used on a desktop or laptop device.

  1. Go to your app store, search for 'Danske ID' or use the links below to download the app.

  2. Activate the Danske ID app by following the instructions on-screen. You'll need your District User ID and eSafeID device handy. If you have forgotten your District User ID you can refer to your District Administrator or contact your Account Manager.

    Our activation guide below takes you through the steps.

    The Danske ID app can only be activated to access either your personal accounts using your eBanking User ID or alternatively your business accounts using your District User ID on any one mobile device at the one time. If you already use Danske ID on your mobile device when accessing your personal accounts on Mobile Banking or to log on to eBanking on a browser, and you now want to use this mobile to access your business accounts, you will first have to deactivate your eBanking User ID on the mobile device by following our deactivation guide below. You can then activate using the United Kingdom (Business) option to access your business accounts on District using your District User ID.

    Alternatively, if you have two mobile devices you can use one mobile device for your business banking and one mobile device for personal banking.

  3. Once you’ve activated Danske ID for business, we will tell you when you need to open it to log on to District. When you have accessed the District log on page and keyed in your User ID and password and have selected Danske ID to log on, we will send a notification to your mobile phone. Then all you have to do is, click on the notification, log on to your Danske ID app (you may have enabled Touch ID), scan the QR code on the District log on screen and slide the button to approve. You will need to give the Danske ID app access to the camera on your phone or tablet to scan the QR code.
